Seafood Technologies targets:
Plant & Food Research develops tools and systems that allow the seafood industry to deliver high quality seafood products, as well as increasing the value of the current harvest through the development of value-added seafood products.
We undertake live capture, harvesting and postharvest research to ensure seafood products retain quality from capture to consumer, and deliver premium returns in global markets. We are also developing new packaging technologies for seafood that reduce damage and optimise quality in transportation.
Our scientists are also investigating the characteristics of shellfish, marine plants and the non-fillet portion of fish to identify molecules that can be used for nutritional products or as industrial biomaterials.
